apt-get install linux-source vs apt-get source linux
I'd like to add a patch to the stock Debian wheezy kernel. According to
http://kernel-handbook.alioth.debian.org/ch-common-tasks.html, there are
two ways to do this.
Either I can install the linux-source package (apt-get install
linux-source), unzip the .tar.bz, apply my patch and run 'make deb-pkg'.
Or I can install the source of the linux-package (apt-get source linux),
and run 'fakeroot debian/rules source', apply my patch, and run
'fakeroot make -f debian/rules.gen binary-arch_amd64'.
Can someone explain to me which method I should use in which situation?
I have randomly picked the first method, and am very surprised that the
resulting kernel has version 3.2.23, while the stock wheezy kernel is
3.2.0. Shouldn't linux-source give me the sources for linux-image?
